Poll Results: There are no ugly fish in the Great Lakes
It’s official: There is no such thing as an ugly Great Lakes fish!
Voters refused to crown a winner in our ugliest fish contest, even after looking at up-close pictures of the gelatinous deepwater sculpin and the monstrous catfish.
Instead our contestants were called “unique” and “beautiful,” making the Great Lakes a home to only beauty queens.
Here are the results:
1. There is no such thing as an ugly Great Lakes Fish 40 percent
2. Deepwater sculpin 24 percent
3. Catfish 13 percent
4. Longnose gar, bowfin, muskie, sturgeon (tie) 6 percent
They fared better then these (mostly) ocean-dwellers, found in a list of the top ten creepiest fish in the world.
You gotta admit that at least some of them are ugly… right?
